I saw Narnia today

And crocheted two squares.

This is a first. I've brought yarn to the theater before, but I've usually stashed it away once the film starts. This is the first time I've crocheted during the film.

I was going almost entirely by feel, ripping back when it didn't feel quite right.

I haven't looked at the squares in full light yet. I'm hoping that if I leave them alone overnight, the crochet fairies will come and fix any remaining mistakes.

They might!

Current square status: 30 out of 30 yellow squares completed. 12 out of 30 green squares completed. 2.5 green squares consigned to the care of the crochet fairies until tomorrow morning.

ETA (2006-01-09 09:30): I love those crochet fairies! With the crocheting I did on the train this morning, I now have 16 out of 30 green squares done.

Well?
So how did you like Narnia? Inquiring minds want to know...

Remember that yarn doily you made in the holiday season from the broken pattern?

I did complete it, and it turned out really nice, thanks to you. It's a shame the community died, I always wanted to thank you for the help, but I don't like to intrude on personal journals, though it was brought to my attention that people might not mind so much.

Anyway, I really do appriciate all the work you did for me, creating an entire doily just to show me how to make the pattern work. It's rare someone will do that for a stranger, so thank you again.

Oh, I was *wondering* if you'd ever finished that doily!
Good to hear that you have and that it looks good!

Yes, it's a pity that crochet is no longer active, but I'm glad you tracked me down to let me know. (No problem with making crochet comments here, since I set this journal up to keep my crochet stuff from taking over my personal blog!)

And it was my pleasure to help you figure out that doily.

(Do you have a photo of yours to share?)

It's at my moms house, next time I'm over there I'll hopefully remember to take a picture. Never did get around to... what's it called, where you pin it down and make it flat? So it curls around the edges. Unfortunately I absolutely hate thread crochet, so on christmas eve I was sitting there tying it off, I just ran out of time. And thus ends my doily saga, I may try hats next time.

Blocking. (Possibly with starch, to make it crisper.)

Hey, thread crochet is not for everyone. Cotton is not very easy to work with, and the scale means there are a lot of stitches needed to cover a small area. (This is why most of my thread crochet tends to be snowflakes!)

However, you've tried it, your mother got a doily, and you now know that you detest thread crochet.

Hats sound like a very good next project. You did that doily, so you know you can work in the round, and that's a big part of it right there.

Cheers!
